                         ------------------------------------------
    8      ounces        lasagna noodles -- 9 noodles
      1/2  pound         ricotta cheese, non-fat
    8      ounces        mozzarella cheese -- shredded
      1/2  cup           Parmesan cheese -- grated
   16      ounces        spaghetti sauce, 5Bros tom/basil
                         salt and pepper
    2      tablespoons   fresh basil
    2      tablespoons   fresh parsley
 
 The Vegetables:
 Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Toss the peppers, carrot, zucchini,
 eggplant, and onion in the oil and pepper.  Spread on baking sheet. 
 Put foiled wrapped garlic in the corner of the pan.  Bake for 30
 minutes and then stir.  Bake 15 minutes more.  Squeeze baked garlic
 into the vegetables, add minced basil and salt.  Set aside.
 
 The Spinach Layer: Fry mushrooms in oil until they start to brown. 
 Add the spinach, salt and pepper, and cook until spinach wilts  and
 liquid is evaporated.  (I use frozen chopped spinach (10 ounces);
 thaw and squeeze out water before adding to pan.)
 
 To Assemble:
 Cook 3 noodles until very al dente.  Spoon a little sauce into a 9x13
 baking dish.  Lay the 3 noodles down in the dish.  Cover with 1/3
 remaining sauce, then spinach and mushrooms.  Place spoonsful of
 ricotto over the spinach layer.  Sprinkle with a little of the grated
 parmesan.
 
 Meanwhile cook 3 more noodles and place in dish.  Cover with another
 1/3 of sauce, the roasted vegetable mixture, and 1/2 of the
 mozzarella.
 
 Cook last three noodles and place in pan.  Add remaining sauce,
 remaining mozzarella,  and remaining parmesan.  Add about 1/4 cup
 water or dry wine.  Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake at 400
 degrees F for 30 minutes.  Remove foil and bake another 15 minutes.

 uncooked, and add a little more water or wine before cooking.
